It is exam revision week again. Added to this, Baby-Gusto has been under the weather with random viruses and their knock on effects, so the key this week has been to cook food that is nutritious, tasty and fast.
Sweet potato and red lentil soup
1 onion sliced
3 sticks of celery diced
2 sweet potatos peeled and diced
1 cup red lentils
2 veggie stock cubes
1 tablespoon hot madras curry powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
add all ingredients into a saucepan and cook on low for 5-10 minutes
Add 2 litres of water. Cook for 30 minutes. Blend. Eat.
Fruit and vegetable coconut curry.
This is fast because although it takes some time to simmer, it is is simply a case of chop vegetables and chuck into a pot. I used onion, 3 carrots, 1 small head broccoli, 1 can chickpeas, 1 cup peas, 2 cups frozen diced pineapple, 2 tablespoons madras curry powder and a tin of coconut milk. Simmer for 30 minutes, and leave for several hours for the flavour to develop. Served with brown rice and mango chutney, this was pure bliss.
